About this Event

This May was the hottest recorded in history, marking twelve straight months of the hottest months ever globally. As a result many regions are experiencing extreme weather conditions. Emerging markets are disproportionally impacted by climate change, with a high degree of vulnerability to increased climate hazards, and a continually widening financing gap to support adaptation and resilience efforts in developing countries. Increasing both public and private sector adaptation financing for these markets is a critical global imperative, requiring urgent action.

The first step in building adaptation and resilience is understanding, qualifying and quantifying climate-related risks, with risk assessment also acting as a key tool in subsequently identifying adaptation needs and originating adaptation-aligned finance. Join us for this event where we explore the successful integration of Physical Climate Risk assessment to investments in emerging markets, and how risk identification can become adaptation and resilience opportunity, leading to improved financial and socio-economic returns across investment contexts.
